Bandage helps rebuild broken bones
Positive.News – Researchers at King’s College London have developed a material that they claim speeds up the healing process for people suffering with severe bone fractures.
The bandage-like biomaterial material is coated in a protein used by the body for growth and repair. The bandage is then stuck to fractures like a plaster and, according to researchers, enhances the bone’s natural ability to heal.
The breakthrough could lead to fewer complications and better outcomes for serious injuries, according to researchers at King’s.
